Columbia Heights is the site of a special dance and symphony concert

In 2012 the National Symphony Orchestra has adopted the trendy Columbia Heights neigbhorhood as its go-to location.

On Monday NSO musicians and the Young Dancers of the Dance Institute of Washington will showcase their collaboration in a free program. The concert is scheduled to start at 5:30 p.m. at the DIW’s headquarters at 3400 14th St. N.W.

Marking its 25th year, DIW has already received a 2011 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program citation from the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities.

The selections of the NSO in its current season are explained above by conductor Christoph Eschenbach.

The NSO musicians participating are: Glenn Donnellan on violin; Ruth Wicker Schaaf on viola; David Teie on cello and Jeffrey Weisner on bass. Fabian Barnes, a former Dance Theater of Harlem soloist and DIW founder, will moderate a question and answer panel following the performance.
